What we do

Our approach

We believe service is the work of the soul. Our work has taught us that our mission is not to fix broken systems but rather to serve unbroken beings. Serving makes us aware of the wholeness in others as well as in ourselves. Service is a relationship between equals, strengthening all parties. Service is renewing, whereas fixing and helping are draining and can lead to burnout. While helping might satisfy the ego, serving elicits a sense of gratitude. 

- Inspired by Naomi Remen's Blog

 

Go Give Yoga aims to serve the children and communities who are most in need.

 

"It's not how much we give but how much love we put into giving." 

 

Mother Teresa

What defines us

Go Give Yoga provides children’s yoga classes

and teacher training to underserved and at risk communities in both the United States and internationally. We also support and mentor individuals who want to implement independent yoga service programs to communities in need.

 

We work to offer our programs at low or no cost to increase access to the powerful tools of yoga to individuals who would not otherwise have the opportunity to access them. A critical goal of Go Give Yoga is to increase representation of people from all backgrounds within the yoga teaching community.

 

For individuals interested in learning a trauma-focused approach to children’s yoga, we provide a yearly training program. This program can also be provided to schools, agencies or yoga studios interested in alternative training dates and/or locations.

 

"Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance."

domestic projects

Our current projects include an ongoing program in rural Mississippi where we partner with Partners in Development. Go Give Yoga has worked in Appalachia and within Dallas and Chicago public schools and small projects in New England and the DMV area.  

 

If you are interested in gaining support for an independent yoga service program please email us at  info@gogiveyoga.org. 

 

"You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give."

international projects

Go Give Yoga teams have traveled to Haiti since 2011 to offer support and stress management to children who experienced trauma resulting from the devastating 2010 earthquake. Partnering with NGOs there, Go Give Yoga teachers and teachers in training work directly with children providing education, empowered movement, arts and crafts as well as a hot meal program. To date, there have been dozens of team trips to Haiti resulting in thousands of children served and hundreds of teachers trained.   

 

We have offered training to teachers at PID’s Guatemala program and look forward to assisting PID in Peru.

If you are interested in joining an international team please contact Jenny@gogiveyoga.com as well as visit the PID website at https://www.pidonline.org/service-trips .
